About us

Hello

We’re Ortolan — a creative agency working with some of Australia’s most loved brands. We specialise in brand strategy, identity, design and art direction across fashion, retail, lifestyle, the arts, architecture and hospitality sectors.

Who we are

People creating for people.

We’re a small, experienced group of brand strategists, creative directors, designers and copywriters who love getting to know you, and your business. We’ve enjoyed long relationships with many of our clients — relationships based on respect, trust and creating brilliant work together.

What we do

Clear strategy, strong branding.

We create strategies for business, to guide and unify organisations. And brands for people, to make real connections through a clear vision, identity and voice. We do it for start ups, brands that need reinvigorating, fast-growing companies and long established brands.

Our Approach

Empathetic, intuitive and collaborative.

We understand the way people think, feel and behave. Balancing this with real research means we can communicate the right message, to the right people, in the right tone, to make the right impact. The process is always a two-way conversation — partnering with collaborators who are progressive and forward-thinking, with similar values to us.

The outcome

Powerful creative that works.

We create memorable brands using visual and verbal identities that are unique to each of our clients. Emotive ideas that connect with real audiences — from everlasting brand imagery to everyday social channels, the outcomes are not only impeccable and inspiring but, most importantly, effective.
